Calgary Optometrist Dr. Bimal Kaur

Dr. Bimal Kaur graduated from ICO (Illinois College of Optometry), Chicago in 2007 with Distinction on the Dean’s List of Cum Laude Honours. She is an alumnus of the University of Winnipeg with a Bachelor of Science Degree, double majoring in Biochemistry & Biology. While undertaking her undergraduate degree, she was involved in heart research at the St. Boniface Research Centre.

She also worked for a year at the Chemistry/Genetic Laboratory at the Health Sciences Centre after graduating from the University of Winnipeg. Dr. Kaur completed her internship at ICO, specializing in Paediatrics and externships in Connecticut (Newington Veterans Affair Hospital) and Michigan (Kresge Eye Institute), with highlighted skills in specialized contact lens fitting, corneal diseases, cataract pre-operative and post-operative management, glaucoma, and retinal diseases. She worked as an associate after graduating from ICO and decided to venture forth with her own practice, Lotus Vision Care, in February of 2009. She sold her Practice in June of 2022 and relocated to Calgary to pursue a specialty in different forms of Dry Eye Treatment along with 16 years of experience in Primary Care Optometry.

Dr. Kaur was a member of SVOSH (Student Volunteers for Optometric Service to Humanity) which facilitates the provision of vision care worldwide to needy people who cannot afford and obtain such care. In her voluntary capacity role, she attended weekly meetings to sort and package used eyeglasses donated by the Lions Club and other Organizations for distribution to the needy recipients. She funded her own mission trip to Honduras with a team of Ophthalmologists, Optometrists, student Optometrists, Opticians and Optometric assistants in 2006 that provided eye services to over six thousand people. Dr. Kaur also provided volunteer services to One Sight in Winnipeg offering free eye exams to children, families, and communities in Winnipeg and surrounding areas. She travelled to India in 2015 for 2 weeks providing eye health services to the poor and needy where most have not had any eye exams.  She is an avid traveller and her most recent mission trip was to El Salvador in 2019, where she volunteered her time for the setup of an eye clinic with other health professionals in the area to promote eye care education and services. Her future undertaking is to do volunteer services of this nature for 2 to 3 weeks in third-world and developing countries every year.

Dr. Kaur is also a graduate of Bharatanatyam (Indian Classical Dance) and actively gives stage performances from time to time. Her interest in dancing has led her to currently train in Latin, hip hop and ballroom dancing. She also loves cycling with her family on the beautiful bicycle paths of Calgary.
